I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I am looking to upgrade the RAM on my Lenovo Ideapad 510-15IKB Laptop of model type - 80SV00FEIH. It currently has 8 GB DDR4 RAM and I was wondering what the max capacity is? Also, how many slots are available and among them, are any free? And to upgrade RAM, by opening the back of the laptop, will my warranty be voided? Sorry if this has already been answered. Thanks Sidzzz

Hello everyone, I changed the UEFI settings in the BIOS and can not run windows and get into bios(black screen, and nothing happens). Is it possible to install the BIOS from Bootable CD ? i have found only .exe file in the drivers page. Now bios version is: 2wcn21ww  Regards,Peter

A:Lenovo ideapad 310 -15IKB BIOS INSTALLATION

Your BIOS is only updateable through the windows platform.Are you stating that you can not get into the BIOS settings?  Page 27 of the user guide shows how to access BIOS setup, using the Novo button, from a POWERED DOWN machine.https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/v310_14isk-15isk_ug_en.pdf

Hi , Lenovo Community I have recently bought Lenovo Idea Pad Notebook 320-151KB , Machine Model 81BT0047AD having 2 TB of Harddisk storage . I found out that primary partition of Harddisk (C is more than 1.5 TB whereas D : is only 100 GB . This seems to me  strange since the secondary partition is always used for more storage . Now i want to change the partition and shrink the volume of C: Drive to less storage and use maximum storage for D: .But minimum volume that can be reduced to is 1 TB which is still too much . Can i use  Novo recovery to reformat the Harddisk and  partition the drive to my choice , in this case how do i know  where  the recovery software is installed and it will not be impacted by the reformat of harddrive . Please advise

Hi, I recently bought an ideapad 310 and I've been trying to connect it to my TV using the VGA connection without success. As soon as I plug the cable in to the PC port the screen freezes and showing only the desktop. Any open window cannot be accessed and even though I can bring up the start menu I cannot launch any program and see it (the program runs but I cannot see it). The HDMI connection works well. Has anybody had the same problem? Can it be a display setting set wrong? Please advise.Many thanks in advance.

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.

According the official technical specifications on Lenovo's website, the IdeaPad 520 (15IKB) notebook has two USB 3.0 ports and one type-C port. But on my IP 520, the two USB-A ports don't have the expected blue colour coding for USB 3.0 and also they both don't have the (SuperSpeed) SS-USB symbol. Instead they have the regular USB trident symbol. Only the type-C port has the SS-USB symbol. The Windows Device Manager lists three USB related drivers viz.Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)USB Composite DeviceUSB Root Hub (USB 3.0) So, the IP 520 really does have two USB 3.0 ports or it's a gimmick?
